assess landfill plan

blog_illl06-05

澳洲西部計劃把於一個保護區6公里外的土地設為堆填區。當區是瀕危物種袋食蟻獸餘下的兩個棲息地之一,亦有其他受威脅的動物如毛尾袋鼠聚居那裡。堆填區會吸引貓、狐狸等捕獵者,為袋食蟻獸帶來更大的威脅。綠色團體上訴成功,令當局要重新評估計劃。

the west Australian propose to build a landfill 6km away from a reservation area. that area is one of the two remaining habitat of the endangered numbest. environmentalists argued the landfill will attract predators like cats and foxes, and that would create more threats to the numbest. the environmentalists successfully appealed against the plan and the environmental protection authority would need to assess the proposal .
